Do you know why moisturizing your baby's skin is a fundamental daily care to defend against external aggressions?
On the surface of the skin there is a film composed of water and lipids called Hydrolipidic Film, derived from the secretions of the sebaceous and sweat glands, its function being to protect the skin from aggressions and contamination from the outside.
In the baby, due to the immaturity of its glands, the production of sebum and sweat is not yet fully developed. This fact results in the production of an impoverished Hydrolipidic Film, making the baby's skin dry, thin, and consequently, more susceptible to contamination, infections, irritations and allergies.
It is therefore essential to pay particular attention to the products you select for your baby's daily hydration.
Due to the association of Colloidal Oats, Rice and Corn, D'AVEIA Pediatria products provide hydration and emollient to the baby's skin, reestablishing the Hydrolipidic Film and the Barrier Function and also promoting a calming and anti-irritant action. Thus, they reinforce their defenses against contamination, infections, irritations and allergies.
